  • Don't watch the original, watch this
    Saint Seiya Lost Canvas is a series with a true body that has hands down surpassed and triumphed over the classic that ran in the 80s. The one who claims otherwise is either a nostalgic or extremely biased since the series stands out with its very beautiful animation, good plot and superb voice acting.

    Unfortunately, one can also notice how LC tries to respect the original series maybe a bit ...

    How bout a serving of AWESOME....
    Wasn't into the whole god vs devil deal but this show drew me into it. Loved it, loved it, loved it!!! It not easy for a friggin cartoon to get me emotional but this was one of the few. Very rememberable, great fights, clear messages across the board.

  • Saint Seiya The Lost Canvas - What's not to like?
    This show is amazing! The fact that it was about a holy war got my attention. The God Hades can kill what ever subject he paints is pretty cool. Also the fact that Hades and the Pegasus saint grew up with one and other and were best friends/brothers. They now need to fight each other to the death is interesting to watch.

    I wish I could read the manga. However it all seems to be printed in ...

  • Forever Saint Seiya!
    Even though it only reached 2 seasons as in anime. I still thought The Lost Canvas was a really awesome prequel to it's original 1986 series "Saint Seiya" & imo --- felt like it topped Omega, as well. Having read the manga after they stopped airing episodes, & for anyone that's into reading manga like myself then you should definitely read through the rest.

    What makes ...

    The Saint Seiya we deserved
    Lets get it out there guys: It's an offshoot, and maybe yeah reusing Hades may haven't been original, but it worked tremendously. This anime has great fighting, and itself has its own ideals. Every character deserved his part, and had amazing development. The plot took its time, but not making needless clutter. The heroes (unlike Omega) stuck to one principle, and lived by it. It is also ...

    great storyline they should have extended it
    I like how the story uses a greek goddess and then using names from astrology but Hades side with specters was a nice twist and kept the fights interesting...The fight with Pisces was something to build the story and tension. But if you like a interesting, fun anime with magic and some historical identities this anime is for you

    Why isn't there more of this?
    I just can't understand why this series ended when Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas is better than the original one and Saint Seiya Omega

    This story plot is a lot less cheesy and the graphics are MUCH better than the others

    pretty good but sad that it ends early
    all things considered it was pretty good, i use to watch saint seiya (well what little they dubbed in america way way back in the day :/ ) and it was pretty awesome to see another part of the story from that universe brought to life with the newer animation we have now. all in all i think it was visually stunning. a little slow a parts. heart breaking at certain moments depending on who your ...

    Hmm, to be completely honest
    Lost Canvas has to be on of the most overrated animes of all time. Its okay. but not a masterpiece like most of their fans make it out to be. I felt like i was watching naruto instead of SS. 1.5/5 stars.
